This week’s Accenture Match Play is without question one of the marquee events of the entire golf season and is the point at which casual golf fans start to take notice that the PGA and European Tours are gearing up with the year’s first major just over a month away. The 64-man NCAA tournament style bracket is broken into 4 “regions” named after four all time golf greats. The host venue, the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club - Dove Mountain, is a monstrous 7833 yard Jack Nicklaus design that will be a stern test for all 64 players who tee it up starting Wednesday morning. The bracket design is where the similarities between the NCAA basketball tournament and this tournament end. Being a #1 or #2 seed almost guarantees an easy road to the second round in basketball but at the Accenture Match Play, #16 seeds upsetting a #1 are not uncommon... in fact, it has happened at least once every year the last six years. The only predictable thing about a tournament like this is that you are going to see something unpredictable. That being said, there are definitely players who are coming in hotter than others and guys who have shown an ability to really shine under this kind of format in the past. Based on those factors, here is a look at some prominent match ups and predictions for all four brackets in this year’s event.
The field for the WGC Match Play Championship is comprised of the Top 64 available golfers from the Official World Golf Rankings, who are seeded 1-64 according to their rankings.
The golfers face off in single-elimination, 18-hole, match-play matches. In the first round, the No. 1 seed plays No. 64; No. 2 plays No. 63; and so on.
On the final day, the last two golfers face off in the championship match, while the two semifinal losers play each other in a consolation match to determine third and fourth places. Both final-day matches are 18 holes (prior to 2011 the final was 36 holes).
A total of 42 international players are among the field of 64, representing 13 countries. There are 24 players under the age of 30 competing in the Accenture Match Play Championship, the most in tournament history, bettering the record of 23 previously set in 2010 and 2011. For the second consecutive year, Italy’s Matteo Manassero (No. 61) is the youngest at 18 years, 9 months and 30 days (as of 2/17/12). He advanced to the third round in 2011 before losing to Donald, 3 and 2.
As announced last week, new for 2012, the seeding for the Accenture Match Play Championship bracket will be based off the OWGR as of the Monday of championship week, February 20, as opposed to the OWGR at the time the field was finalized. This modification was made to ensure players are seeded based upon their most current ranking position. The eligibility criteria for the field remain unchanged. This change may be best illustrated at the top of the bracket; while Westwood has moved to No. 2 with his T2 at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, fractions ahead of McIlroy, next week the two are projected to again swap positions with McIlroy taking the No. 2 seed and Westwood falling to No. 3.
The players committed to the field are listed below. In the event a player withdraws from the Accenture Match Play Championship before the brackets are released, the next player in the Official World Golf Ranking gains entry into the field and the brackets are re-ordered. If a player withdraws after the brackets are released, the next player on the alternate list takes his place in the bracket. The next three players on the Official World Golf Ranking are: No. 67 Ryan Moore (USA); No. 68 Robert Allenby (AUS); and No. 69 Joost Luiten (Holland).Related Search :
